86 Voters…

So I just got back from voting, and it was a pretty dismal turnout. I was voter 86. There are over 1600 registered voters in the precinct in which I reside. This is also pretty sad, being as that there are 5000 residents in Deep Ellum alone.

The Trinity vote was such a huge, highly publicized item on this ballot, front page of D and the Observer in recent weeks and yet no one turns out.

People always talk about how it doesn’t matter if they vote or not…trust me when this few people are turning out it definitely matters.

    People (like you) also think that people read D and the Observer. They don’t. If you consider the distribution versus the general population, it’s a huge joke.

    Those 2 outlets were the last that i saw before writing this entry, it also made the Dallas Morning News, among others, and has been an ongoing issue for the past decade. So, the fact that Dallas didn’t turn out for to vote on a proposition that has such an impact on the city is the huge joke, not the readership of any media outlet.
